Appreciate the link but my problem with this is that Lulzbot is giving its customers a bad profile on their own website. It seems like it is a very minor fix to change the fill to 20-25%. I think it is bad for the company to not fix this.

We provide the Slic3r profiles as a starting point for our customers. Please keep in mind that most of our users will tweak each slicing profile to suit their particular model, as there are always ways to improve your print, model by model, slice by slice.

The infill density is a variable that can be changed print by print. A higher infill density will help with models with small structures. The medium profile is set to be used as a profile that will work for almost all models and all users.

The two profiles you linked do not have any hot end or bed temperatures specified in the configuration file. Make sure it's imported correctly. Your temperature settings under the filament tab will read "0" if you imported successfully. If you are using the Fine ABS profile, we have different temperatures specified in that particular profile for improved bridging/overhangs to help balance out the thinner layers and increased layer time.

So you are saying that the 50% infill in the medium profile on the Lulzbot is intentional?

What they're saying is that the 50% infill is adjustable.....

I personally don't find 20-25% to be optimum, wouldn't really call that a "fix".

Can lulzbot supply (or anyone else) a profile for dual extruder, with a GOOD profile for PVA support material?

I've been following these instructions to load a new profile:

"To view the contents of each profile simply click on them. Your browser should display the contents. To save the profile right click on the profile you would like and select "Save as". Once saved to a memorable location, load the configuration file in Slic3r by selecting File > Import Config."

After choosing import config I select the ini. file and click open and Slic3r crashes every time.

Any ideas as to what is going on?

Thank you.

Also, I've tried it on multiple version of slic3r the latest of which is: slic3r-mswin-x86-1-1-7-stable (1)

Try right-clicking the link to save-as then load that file the same way.

Can you post a link to the file you saved? Perhaps something is getting added or taken away.
